Ice Water Games
Ice Water Games is a new company that has just released their first title—Eidolon, a narrative exploration game set in post-human Western Washington. We’re a loose collection of writers, programmers, and artists who come together on a project-by-project basis. For Antholojam, Ice Water Games is Kevin Maxon, Zoe Vartanian, Isa Hutchinson, Shadie Hijazi, Jeffrey Klinicke, Adam Murgittroyd, and Michael Bell. In a future world where humanity has developed the technology to explore beyond consciousness, past the outermost fringes of waking reality, a team of researchers takes the first journey to the afterlife.

You are a human traveler, alone in Quaoar's spaceport bar with nothing to your name but a vivid imagination and a willingness to lie about your travels. You've attracted the attention of a small audience -- two aliens, a robot, and a talking dog -- and they're ready to listen to your story, as long as you don't annoy them too much. Spin your story with the tools you have available: the dinner table is your stage, utensils and items of food the players in your narrative. As you tell the story, your audience will talk back, asking questions that you'll need to answer to keep the story going.
